Just wanted to give everyone a quick update. I am currently on the pancreas transplant list and looking forward to the surgery, this list is updated monthly and my lab work each month determines weather I am listed as active or in-active. Since the surgery will do damage to the transplanted kidney it is important that my kidney function or (GFR) # is at or above a certian level. Also the protocol for a pancreas only transplant is difficult for someone like me who has already had one pancreas transplant with a transplanted kidney. At this time the kidney is functioning very well and protecting it is a high priority. Again let me say thank you to all who have donated and for your thoughts and prayers, I am doing well and know that everything will happen in Gods perfect timing. Thanks again and i will keep you all updated better in the future.
